Postgraduate Admissions


Postgraduate Admissions Open Day 2018

Our 2018 Postgraduate Admissions Open Day was on Friday 19 October

This research open day for prospective postgraduate students is always very popular.

Events included inspiring research talks, tours of the labs and facilities, poster sessions and refreshments. As ever, our Open Day is a great way to see at first hand what the Department has to offer potential MPhil and PhD students. Anyone interested in pursuing a further degree in Chemistry at Cambridge is welcome to come along and find out more.

Our next Postgraduate Admissions Open Day will take place in October 2019, on a date to be confirmed.

The day was free to attend, although registration was essential. It started at 10:30am and offered a full programme of talks, lab tours, and admissions Q&A's.
